The month of September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. Everyone who signs up for a new library card will get their picture taken with their new card. Milford Public Library will make a customized READ poster of the new patron to display during September.
Also, anyone getting a card in September will have their name entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant of their choice.
Getting a Milford Public Library card is very simple. Do you live or own property in Van Buren or East Jefferson townships? If you do, just bring in a photo ID with the address of your property on it and we will register you as a new patron. Anyone who attends or works in Wawasee School Corporation may also get a card. Please bring your school ID or proof you are staff/teacher to the adult circulation desk to register for your card.
There are many benefits to having a library card. The Milford Public Library has many of the best-selling books available to borrow. There are new DVDs and CDs added to our collection every month. We have five public access computers for Internet and offer wireless service.
Do you enjoy reading magazines but dislike the clutter they create? What do you do with magazines when you are finished reading them? Recycle? Stop by the library and see if we subscribe to your favorites and check them out, enjoy them for a week and bring them back! Come in and get the smartest card you can carry in your wallet: a Milford Public Library card!
